A Carriage Works grille insert is an aftermarket automotive accessory that can be installed on your automobile to improve its aesthetic appeal. Basically, a grille insert is constructed out of plastic or metal material. A metal grille insert is typically made from billet aluminum or chrome plated stainless steel. On the other hand, plastic grille inserts have wider variety in terms of motif. Colors and textures of plastic grille inserts vary. A grille insert allows you to customize the appearance of the front portion of your vehicle. The front portion of the vehicle is comparable to the face. It is the most easily recognizable and appealing portion of the vehicle.
The front portion is comprised of the front fascia, the headlights, the signal lights and the grille. The grille serves both aesthetic and functional purpose. It complements the paint finish of the vehicle. On the other hand, its shiny silvery finish accentuates the silvery headlights. The grille covers the front central portion of the vehicle. It serves as entry point for air. Behind the grille, the radiator fan and radiator are located. Air flows through the grille and blown by the radiator fan on the surface of the radiator. Heat dissipated from the radiator is also radiated out of the grille.
As the name implies, the automobile grille is a lattice or framework. This framework allows the flow of air into the radiator of the engine. Most of the heat from the radiator escapes through the automobile grille. A grille insert, on the other hand, does not enhance or obstruct the function of the grille but it improves the appearance of the grille.
